Since the 2008 Russian-Georgian war that lasted for 5 days, the two Georgian separatist regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia have been occupied by Russian forces under the pretense of protecting their “independence”. They have only been recognized by Russia and a handful of other Kremlin friendly states.

This site aims to monitor and give insight in the incidents and activities around the administrative boundary lines (ABL), the so called “borders” of the two regions. Also other security related and Russian activities inside the regions are tracked. To provide an overview of the scale and intensity of various types of incidents they have been mapped. This is an ongoing proces.
